Cincy Journeys Grants
The Cincy Journeys grant program enables Cincinnati Jewish children, teens, and young adults to attend or work at Jewish overnight camps as well as travel to Israel. These grants are not based on financial need. Jewish overnight camp and Israel travel give our young community members the skills, experience, and desire to become tomorrow’s Jewish leaders. The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati are pleased to offer the following Cincy Journeys grants.
Each Cincinnati Jewish child is eligible for two summers of camp grants.
· First-Time Grant (3+ weeks): $2,250
· Second-Time Grant (3+ weeks): $1,250
· First-Time Grant (2 weeks): $1,125
· Second-Time Grant (2 weeks): $625
The Cincy Journeys Camp Counselor and Staff Fellowship supports the professional development of our young adults as well as the staffing needs of overnight Jewish camps. The Camp Fellowship is available for Cincinnati Jewish young adults ages 18 (or after graduating high school) to 26 to work at an approved Jewish overnight camp in the United States or Canada. The fellowship will include the following salary subsidy:
Israel Travel Grants
Two Israel travel grants (for $8,000 and $6,250) can be used by Cincinnati Jewish teens and young adults any time between the ages of 16 to 26 with approved trip providers. Grants must be used for separate experiences and cannot be combined for a semester or year-long programs.
